In response to repeated posts concerning Mr & Mrs Swinstead’s holdings I updated the thread last week (post 6438). At the time I speculated that should the Swinstead’s wish to sell down then they’d likely engage with brokers & sell to an institutional holder. Today we have Helium declaring a 10% holding (11.2m shares) which is not a far cry from the Swinstead’s previously declared combined holding of 12m. Helium may well have taken their position by other means. We should receive a RNS indicating details of the seller in the near future. Kind regards GHF

Copy of my tweet this morning @glasshalfull1 PTY @ParityProf I mentioned topping up here last week. WH Ireland have today reiterated a fair value target price of 18.5p vs current price of 13.75p in light of yesterdays offer for peer @HarveyNashGroup 👇🏻 “...remains modestly rated on a forward PER of c.7x December 2019 earnings / 5x EV/EBITDA, ahead of results due to be announced in mid-September. Last month’s update highlighted double digit growth in the half year and trading continuing in line with expectations. The company continues to grow its Consultancy Services (CS) division, which is a specialist in delivering data solutions and IT projects to a diverse client base. CS in turn generates double-digit margins which are a further contributory factor to the enhanced performance we have been seeing.” “The company has invested in high-level operational management and has seen some good, household name, wins. With positive organic growth characteristics, the recent update highlighted encouraging sales prospects from both established and new clients. The disposal of non-core Inition in April removed a distraction. The shares have drifted from c.15.6p in the last couple of months and the rating is slender both in relation to peers and to our assessment of fair value of 18.5p. While the businesses are not strictly comparable, yesterday’s cash offer for Harvey Nash at 9.1x EV/EBITDA serves as a reminder of value in the sector, in our view, including PTY at the current share price.” Kind regards, GHF

Ignore the noise and concentrate on recovery prospects here. Techinvest included PTY in their 2nd half best buy list. WHI has 18.5p target.

Afternoon folks, I last posted extensively at the end of April, providing an overview of the investment case as I saw it, and then at the end of May to confirm I’d modestly increased my holding. Since this time I have trimmed quite a few holdings and increased my cash balance. PTY was one of the companies I reduced my position in, locking in profits over recent months from purchases made in 2017 when the share price was in single digits. Nothing wrong with PTY, far from it, just prudent portfolio management as I saw it. Anyway, on logging on a few days ago I was astonished at the amount of misinformation posted here concerning Mr P Swinstead’s holding & further inaccurate posts regarding the pension deficit. Appears that “fake” news is all the rage these days! My post 6312 covers Mr Swinstead’s shareholding. When I last looked Mr & Mrs Swinstead held just over 12m shares. This included 1.6m shares purchased by him in 2015 & 2.9m sold between 2016-2018. Why investors persist with the notion that this is an overhang is beyond me. He is a savvy individual and should he wish to fund his retirement further then I’m sure he would engage with the company & brokers to engineer a secondary placing or an approach would be made to institutions interested in picking up a tranche of stock. Happens all the time. I don’t believe he’s sitting for one minute and hitting the bid with a line of 50k shares a pop! I also previously posted on the pension scheme deficit. I believe it had c.70 members & has been closed to new members & future accruals since 1995. Retirees make up 88% of members. The deficit had previously risen due to the lower bond yields we witnessed in recent years. This is a small pension scheme which also only has a small bearing on PTY, which paid £230k to the scheme annually. Results for 2017 confirmed that the pension deficit had decreased from £1.85m to £1.06m at year end due to a good return on scheme assets. The nub of my post however is to compliment Alan Rommel & his team in delivering positive H1 results. Delivery of double digit growth while also referencing, “tight cost controls & w.c. management”, indicate that they are on target to extinguish net debt by year end. Reminder this would mean that they would have reduced net debt from £7.38m at 31.12.2015 to zero in the space of 3 years. Simply stunning should they pull it off. I’ve therefore taken the opportunity to increase my holding over the last couple of sessions as the shares look extremely good value down here. Despite confirmation on positive trading, the share price had fallen back by (-20%) in just under 2 months (they hit 15.7p in early June & fell to 12.15p mid price yesterday). The H1 trading update suggested robust trading with a strong outlook which indicates Parity are on a prospective PER of 7 for the year. All IMHO of course. Kind regards, GHF

Parity Group Plc: The 'best-kept secret' in recruitment and consultancy. Earlier in the year Alan Rommel, told Proactive their aim is to become a leading provider of digital services to their clients through two complimentary businesses. ''The first of those is a consultancy business which focuses on larger deliverables ... higher margins, higher value, longer-term contracts ... increasingly focused on the data markets and data analytics''. ''That is supported by our professionals division which is fundamentally a recruitment business ... they're well established, have a strong brand in the IT sector and we support IT and business change programs for our clients'' Trading update confirmed progress. Still a Buy imo.

Net debt was £1.6m last accounts, probably now cleared to net cash. Margins improved to 2.15%. They are using their own IT guys to develop their service and software side.

Opodio - Shorters usually pick on over priced stock - not ones already undervalued. You seem like a novice, so why not go and play somewhere else. I've been in and out of this stock for over ten years, and on a couple of occasions have made 3 or 4 times my investment when it rockets above 30p.
